Cultural and natural resources have a shared history of over 6,000 years within Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. The interaction between nature and humans is evident…from the spoil islands to the altered wetlands, from the shell middens of the Theodore Roosevelt Area to the tabby structures of Kingsley Plantation and from the boat docks of neighboring subdivisions to the introduction of exotic animals and plants. Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve is a place where natural and cultural resources connect.
